Default SINGLE WANNABE"S

So I live in Colorado visited tv 3 times, did the lifestyle thing once and have bought the TV thing hook line and sinker. I keep seeing people post about how they are trying to get to tv but cant sell or whatever. So I wonder, How many of us are there out there? Are you trying to start a new life like I am?

benj....... thanks for initiating this topic! YES, I'm a single wannabee and I've been hanging out here at TOTV for a couple of months. However, I have not visited TV yet; perhaps this fall or winter I'll make the journey from southern Oregon to Florida and do the lifestyle preview. I lived in Miami Florida for 40 years before retiring and moving "out west" for an adventure. I'm living in a small (2k pop.) rural town, 8 miles from Grants Pass, 11 miles from Medford, and 23 miles from Ashland. My old bones just can't get used to the long, dreary, frosty winters so I look forward to the time when I can relocate back to Florida and partake in the many social opportunities.

It has been quiet in this Singles Forum for the last couple of days and I'm hoping we don't get bumped out again. C'MON SINGLES............. SAY SOMETHING 040

I visited TV when I rented a place in Ocala for 3 months back in 2006. I was referred to TV by the guy I rented from who actually lived in TV for 5 years. He told me how easy it would be for me to meet many single and widowed women in TV but my visits were limited in nature since I could not have access to all the amenities. But I did enjoy the strolls around Market Square and Sumpter Landing where I got a good feeling for the atmosphere. I sit up here, 10 miles north of Ohare in a Chicago suburb waiting patiently for my house to sell. I hope I don't have to spend another dismal winter here!!

CIBabe,

That looks like something I could handle while awaiting my relocation. If I get my house sold does that mean I get to walk the plank??

p.s. always enjoy looking at your photos and comments on the TOTV.

Glad y'all like my idea of "being in the same boat" and sailing is among my most treasured memories from living in Miami all those years. The sailboat pic was taken in 1979 while I was aboard another sailboat (a Watkins27) on Biscayne Bay.

One of my goals (wishes) is to sail the Florida waters again someday : I'm hoping there is a Sailing Club in TV 8)

Hey Singles,

Any ideas of what will be among the first things you do when you get settled into being a resident of TV? Of course, meeting and greeting all TOTV members. After all, how can we forget how helpful and courteous all the folks of TOTV have been to we wannabees, both couples and singles!! But, after that, what activities will you check out first?

Me? I would like to participate in the "Sunshine" committee of the Singles Clubs. It is described as ...
"Our goal is to reach out and give our fellow members a show of kindness or a helping hand in time of need. Simple, thoughtful things such as a card that fits the occasion, or a home or hospital visit, driving them to and from the doctor or store, picking up medicine or groceries -- just letting them know that someone cares and is thinking about them."


Sounds pretty cool to me. Also, just about any of the sports activities from softball to tennis, and just about any thing else that can keep off the couch and out of bakeries. The various Singles clubs seem to have great participation by their members. To paraphrase ConeyIsBabe, we're all in this together.

What clubs, churches, and educational pursuits will you tend to join after you have unpacked your last box? Is there someone out there who can teach this single guy the fine art of line dancing?? ;D Just can't get the hang of it although, I must admit, by the time "happy hour" ends I'm usually dancing pretty well...perhaps, it's just my imagination as "The Temptations" said. :dontknow:

My sister and brother-in-law moved to TV a few years ago. I visited last year and fell in love with the place. I hope to relocate summer '09. I'll take my time "settling in" because I will be buying all new furniture, but won't do so all at once.

I plan to first enjoy evenings on the Squares, learning my way around TV, meet TOTVers, join some clubs. I'll have to determine what sports activities I want to join. I'll take some golf lessons and see if I can pick up the game. I'll play shuffleboard, and if I can find some volleyball or basketball teams, may get back into those games. I don't plan to initially join the singles clubs. I'll first see if I can find a "crew of characters" to be my friends/playmates. If unsuccessful doing it on my own, then I'll join the singles clubs. I will join other clubs (the Civil War is one interest), I'll definitely have an annual pass to Walt Disney World since I just love it. It'll be great living so close. I'll do some local touring around Florida.

There is a class where you can learn how to line dance. I think others have mentioned it. If you search "line dance" on this site, you'll probably find where it's discussed.

tkret......... great question......... one that should stimulate some responses from all the other single wannabees reading this forum, but who haven't yet posted!

I'm not very athletic and will not be playing golf or ball activities but as far as dancing goes, I always favored the slow-dance anyway. Photography, Computer, clubs for a start!

I have been single for a very long time, by choice, and have attended my share of "singles clubs" but have never mastered the art of walking into a room filled with strangers and making friends instantly! I would much rather participate in an activity that interests me. I would join the Fitness Center because I want access to an indoor swimming pool. I am anxious to take some Learning Center Classes - so many choices - art? Spanish? or French? :dontknow:

P.S. I sure do wish there is a sailing club ;D
